Thanks for stopping by! I’m delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for The Wrong Ghost by Victoria Connelly today. With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite to join the tour and to the author for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
When Beatrice Beaumont loses her husband, George, she finds herself raising their young daughter alone in the ancestral home, Ketton Hall, deep in the Suffolk countryside. With Christmas approaching and marking the first anniversary of George’s death, there’s nothing Bea wants more than to have him back again.
One night, she makes a wish for him to return and gets the shock of her life when a ghost appears. But it isn’t her George…
The Wrong Ghost is a delightful Christmas tale, full of warmth and charm, perfect for a dark winter’s night in a cosy, candle-lit room.
The Wrong Ghost was a wonderful gentle festive read! The pacing was great especially with it being a novella. Victoria Connelly did a great job of introducing the characters in a short space of time. I really enjoyed my time spent with both Beatrice and George. In The Wrong Ghost there was such a heartwarming storyline. It held both a certain amount of emotion along with a hint of mystery that combined to create an intriguing edge.
There was just a touch of Christmas included in this story and it was a welcome addition. It wasn’t overpowering though, which I liked. I thought the setting was perfect with the ancestral home providing an interesting backstory in itself. I couldn’t help but root for Beatrice and hope that she found her way again after such tragic events in her past. There is a paranormal edge to this book but it is wonderfully portrayed. The Wrong Ghost had a lovely sprinkling of charm, warmth and hope. A lovely combination!
Victoria Connelly lives in a 500-year old thatched cottage in rural Suffolk with her artist husband, a springer spaniel and a flock of ex-battery hens. She is the million-selling author of two bestselling series, The Austen Addicts and The Book Lovers, as well as many other novels and novellas. Her first published novel, Flights of Angels, was made into a film in Germany. Victoria loves books, films, walking, historic buildings and animals. If she isn’t at her keyboard writing, she can usually be found in her garden either with a trowel in her hand or a hen on her lap.
